Tripping to CT!

Tripping to CT!

Greenwich CT, Old Greenwich, Stamford and Rye.   After our recent weekend on the road to DC and back, this past weekend we decided (Chilli and I) to explore much closer to home.

Buddakan – love love love. This is the restaurant in the first Sex and … Continue reading

Day two in Roscoe, we did not go Skiing….but we did manage to completely relax and spend some quality time with our 3 little girls in the country (yes Chilli Sparkles is one of them).  I feel super blessed after spending my second weekend at our friends river house in Roscoe. Such lovely, generous, clever … Continue reading
